It sucks for those guys and frankly it is unfair. You can't slice it any other way.
I may be wrong but I don't see how your analogy applies. You are talking about a doctor's salary whereas the $40,000 is a signing bonus. Don't most minor leaguers make roughly the same amount depending on level in the system? I honestly don't know but that is something I would like to find out if anyone knows.
